CULTURE: Landscape paintings on the windows of Tallinn Bus Station

Starting 05.07.2021, the windows of Tallinn Bus Station will be decorated with landscape paintings from the expositions of the Estonian Art Museum.

On the viewing windows of the waiting room of Tallinn Bus Station, you can see paintings of Estonian landscapes from permanent exhibitions of the Estonian Art Museum, Kadriorg Art Museum, Mikkeli Museum, Niguliste Museum and Adamson-Eric Museum.

Most of the pieces of art are in their original sizes and placed on the windows as repro stickers. The sun-side windows of the waiting hall open the possibility of seeing the works in a new light.

“The Estonian Art Museum is organizing its second exhibition at our place, which we are hoping to use to make our waiting hall cosier for visitors. We hope that the landscapes that will decorate our windows will inspire visitors to such an extent that the art corner set up with the necessary tools will be used frequently” said Tallinn Bus Station marketing and communication specialist Kadriann Raud, adding that the aim is also to use art to create a dialogue with passengers.

Piret Järvan, the marketing specialist of the Estonian Art Museum, describes the collaboration, that will continue after the first exhibition of landscape painting inspired by Christian Ackermann’s work: “At the end of last year, Tallinn Bus Station made an interesting proposal to the Estonian Art Museum for cooperation. At the beginning of the year waiting hall windows of Tallinn Bus Station were decorated with the art of Ackermann. This Summer it is replaced with landscape paintings. On longer and shorter bus rides, passengers can still admire beautiful landscapes, which have inspired many artists. We hope that with the exhibition at the bus station, visitors will be pleasantly surprised, and the original paintings will be viewed at the five branches of the Estonian Art Museum.”
